Riccardo Tisci has been moving away from black which he loves and wanted to show a more romantic side which was reflected with powdery colors, undulating peplums and sheer, frothy fabrics which were surely feminine. After moving fashion into a print loving direction, Tisci has opted to be cleansed of pattern and to go deep sea diving.
There were some markings of some sea wolves that were hand-painted on sequins or leather, and a giant shark tooth pendant on a chain hanging against the rib cage. The show opened with a sleeveless blazer with low slung, peaked lapels and then there were that had menacing short tails worn with severe blouses and sexy scubalike pants. The tailoring and construction were extremely exceptional and innovative. Snug jackets with sprouting jabots moved like seaweed. Skirts had swooping hemlines and trailing streamers.
The climax of the show came when pieces came out with slashed leather fish scales and head to toe silver sequins. When Gisele Bündschen came out with a short and shiny algae green ensemble it was the perfect final look and she looked ravishing and sexy in it making her look like a queen of the ocean.
This is a beautiful Givenchy collection that will blow you out of the water.
